Recycled Paper Gift Envelopes

It's always a shame to throw away used gift paper (or any craft paper) when you have some left over. Here's a method of turning those scraps into gorgeous little gift envelopes.

Total Time: 20 minutes

  1. On the blank side of your paper, draw out this pattern, using a ruler to measure. If you'd like a bigger or smaller version, adjust the measurements accordingly.
  2. Cut right outside the lines of this pattern. Trim off the triangles indicated by black. (The same goes for the bottom, but the pattern shows them cut off there.)

  4. Start by folding the two 1.5" sections inward to make your creases. Unfold, then glue the vertical 1/4" section. Refold then seal.
  5. Fold the bottom horizontal 1/4" section upwards to make a crease. Unfold, glue, then fold back up to seal.
  6. Ad

  7. After inserting your gift or letter, you can fold the top side down and secure with glue or a sticker.
